ARNOLD ENDORSES McCAIN WHILE ARNOLD’S KENNEDY WIFE ENDORSES OBAMA: The rich really are different — they’re all insane! Schwarzenegger endorsed John McCain last week, after Rudy Giuliani dropped out in disgrace, and after Schwarzenegger weakly claimed he wouldn’t endorse anyone.

Kennedys Praise Barry For Being Like Their Family

The oldest and most important man — the “dean,” or “stern grampa,” might we say? — of the Democratic party, the Liberal who is somehow brothers with various political legends who died 900 years ago, TED KENNEDY, gave his big endorsement speech for Barry today at Washington’s American University. Caroline Kennedy, whose father was some sort of neat, pretty president in the 1960s — the one obsessed with putting humans on the moon by a certain time — joined Uncle Teddy to give a Hope speech as well. Congrats, Barry: you have officially become a Kennedy today. It would be wise to beef up your security. After the jump, some clips of Ted and Caroline’s speeches. If Ted keeps getting this excited whenever he says “Change,” he may very well die. But isn’t death a Change in and of itself? Read more on Kennedys Praise Barry For Being Like Their Family…

Casting Camelot Two

So when is the bias-hunting Media Research Center gonna pop a cap in WP style writer Robin Givhan’s well-clad ass? Sure, she got all wriggly about Condi dominatrix duds, but not so long after she berates the Veep for wearing “the kind of attire one typically wears to operate a snow blower,” she declares that the Roberts family is dressed nice… a little too nice. Admittedly, we don’t know much about fashion (no white chaps after Labor Day, right?), but we had no idea that a Talmudic reading of “appropriate attire” could, in fact, discern attire so appropriate it becomes inappropriate: Read more on Casting Camelot Two…
